My Love/Hate Relationship With Bra Shopping!

When it comes to bra shopping, I'm super picky! 
In fact, I'm so picky, I've been buying my bras from the same store since high school! It's so hard to find a bra that has it all and still looks natural under clothing.

If a bra makes me look pointy at all, I run the other way!
There may have been a time when this was attractive, but honey, I do NOT want to look like Madonna when I leave the house. 

Another issue I have with bras are the straps. I'm a 34D, so I need straps that will hold my girls up without being too wide. I want to be able to wear my bra under a tank top without the straps showing.

And the last thing that bothers me about bra shopping, is finding ones that fit my entire boob into the cup. I need full coverage so I don't have any "fourboob."
This right here is a NO NO.

The band needs to be comfortable, and I love when it has some lace added in. I'm a girly girl, so I like pretty long as they also function.

This is where Vanity Fair has hit the mark!
I was sent a couple of bras to review from Vanity Fair, and to be honest, I already had my mind made up that I'd probably hate them. I had tried a few Vanity Fair bras in the past and never really liked them all that much. 
Well, I tried them on and absolutely fell in love with them! 

Not only were they comfortable, but the shape they give me is perfect! The straps are the perfect width and the bands are exactly what I've been wanting in a great bra!

Now I'm not one to post photos of myself in my bra, so I'll be using stock photos. I can promise you though, these are my new favorite bras! 

The first one I want to rave about is the Vanity Fair Light & Luxurious Full Coverage Bra (in Dusty Blue).

It's such a pretty bra, but it's also so comfortable.
Here is the description from Vanity Fair's website:
The best of both worlds! With full-coverage cups and scalloped lace detailing, this women's Vanity Fair bra offers function and fashion.
Product Features
  • Two-ply back wings provide support
  • Lightweight padding
  • Smooth, sleek fabric
  • Tag-free styling
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Underwire
  • Back closure
I really couldn't describe it better myself. It truly offers all the function, and is still so pretty!

The next bra I want to rave about is the Vanity Fair Body Caress Beauty Back Full Coverage Bra (in Times Square Navy).

This bra is described as:

Combining comfort, support, and smoothing all in one, this bra is designed with an innovative fabric that reduces the appearance of back bulge, smoothes, and feels super soft against the skin. Convertible straps allow for wardrobe versatility.
  • Sizes 34-38B 34-42C 34-40D 34-40DD
  • Microfiber wings wrap around and smooth back for a smooth look under clothes
  • Convertible Straps
  • Matte Finish for a Smooth Look Under Clothes
This bra is so smooth and comfortable. The shape it gives me is flawless, and it's probably the most comfortable bra I've ever owned. It also has convertible straps, so it works with almost any outfit. 
So the next time you dread bra shopping, check out the Vanity Fair section at your local retail store (Vanity Fair bras can be found nationwide and also in Canada). I promise you, you'll be pleasantly surprised!

  1. I have a Love/Hate relationship with bra shopping too. It is so hard to pick out a good bra that gives a lot of support. But I do have some Vanity Fair bras and they work very well in giving me support.
